Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad : Lego man in space

This is a story about two teens Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, who lunched the first lego man in space.

Their brilliant ideas are done originally for fun, not for any school project, after they posted their video on youtube it reaches thousands of view and counting, since then they have been receiving sponsors and award for that achievement.

Two teens from Toronto successfully launched a Lego figure into near space -- and launched a storm of interest on the Web.
Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad, 17-year-old classmates at Agincourt Collegiate Institute, took four months, many Saturdays, and $400 to carry a Lego figurine and four cameras miles above the earth, a project that the two did for fun, not for class.
"We didn't really believe we could do it until we did," Ho told the Toronto Star.
You can see the video they made, using the stunning photos of the Lego man 78,000 feet off the ground, here.
The video shows the two-inch high LEGO man holding a Canadian flag flying high above Earth and the clouds, until the tilt of the earth's axis can be seen. And then the balloon pops, sending the Lego guy back to the ground in a mere 32 minutes.
